One of the most important Impressionist artists in Canada, Helen McNicoll (1879–1915) achieved a great deal of international success in a career that lasted just over a decade. Born in Toronto and raised in Montreal, McNicoll trained at the Art Association of Montreal before moving to London, England, to pursue her passion. Deaf from the age of two, the artist travelled extensively across Europe and was well-regarded at home and abroad for her bright and sunny representations of rural...

This book is the outcome of experiments in the examination of works of art under ultra-violet rays, conducted in the Museum in the late 1920s by James J. Rorimer.

Before his tragic death at age forty, Oscar Cahén (1916–1956) fled Nazi Germany and made his name as a celebrated magazine illustrator in North America. At twenty-four years old, Cahén fled with his family from Dresden to England, where he was detained as a possible German spy. After this daring escape from Germany, he migrated to Canada on a prison ship, along with over two thousand German-Jewish men declared enemy aliens. Despite the personal adversity he faced, Cahén soon shot to fame...

Lionel LeMoine FitzGerald: Life & Work  tracks the development of the artist’s career from his youthful enthusiasm for the writings of Ruskin through formative influences derived from Impressionism and Post-Impressionist artists. The book chronicles FitzGerald’s mature style, from the late 1920s to early 1930s, which captured the quintessential Western Canadian look of land, sky, trees, and—most importantly—penetrating, intense light. Quiet in personality and passionate about art,...

Passionately and unapologetically Canadian, artist and activist Greg Curnoe (1936–1992) transformed his hometown of London, Ontario, into an important city for artistic production. Born in 1936, he strongly rejected the idea of moving to “the centre”—Toronto or New York—and spearheaded London Regionalism, a movement that focused on everyday life and turned away from the metropolitan mores of the 1960s and 1970s art scene.   Greg Curnoe: Life & Work  chronicles the artist’s...

This is an updated Catalogue which includes a Virtual Art Gallery of over twenty drawings and paintings with their technical specifications by the English artist Winston Watson (b. 1945) who, since January 2018, has made his home in Orkney, Scotland.       Most of the art illustrated is abstract if not abstract expressionist in genre but there is one painting (no. 12) entitled Cat that is indeed easily recognisable as a cat. 
Topics: Painting, drawing, abstract art, abstract expressionism, British art, Orkney

Born in Thurso, Scotland, Jock Macdonald (1897–1960) arrived in Vancouver in September 1926 and became head of design at the recently established Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts (now the Emily Carr University of Art + Design). Over the next three decades he was a trailblazer in Canadian art: He was the first painter to exhibit abstract art in Vancouver and he championed Canadian avant-garde artists at home and abroad. In addition to Macdonald’s practice as a painter, his...

Jean Paul Lemieux (1904–1990), painter, illustrator, critic, and teacher, is one of the most significant artists in the history of Canadian modernity. Born in Quebec City, Lemieux chose to pursue his artistic and teaching career in his native city, from where his art and thought radiated outward for more than half a century. Lemieux captured an inner world of solitude and memories that offered a highly personal, singular vision of Quebec.   As a critic Lemieux was one of the first to define...

Paterson Ewen (1925–2002) had the rare privilege of being involved with two seminal moments in Canadian art: the first with the Automatistes in Quebec, the second with the London, Ontario, art scene of the 1960s and early 1970s. The former directed Ewen away from landscape painting, the latter back to it. But Ewen’s treatment of landscape painting was far from traditional; it involved using large sheets of plywood that incorporated printmaking and sculpture. The result was a gouged, painted...

An artistic anarchist and a rebellious theorist, Paul-Émile Borduas (1905–1960) sought a new freedom for visual expression, opposing the narrow nationalism of mid-twentieth-century Quebec. In 1938, while studying in Paris, Borduas was influenced by the “automatic painting” techniques of French writer and Surrealist André Breton and by Leonardo da Vinci’s suggestion that an artist can create without a preconceived idea. Returning to Montreal, Borduas began to engage his impulses,...

A painter with unsurpassed technical proficiency and a bold experimenter in film, Jack Chambers (1931–1978) created his art and lived his life with passion. Never shy about going after what he wanted, a young Chambers left London, Ontario, in 1953 and later arrived unannounced at the home of legendary artist Pablo Picasso. Charmed by this brazen Canadian, Picasso advised him to study in Barcelona. The artists Chambers met in Spain and the influence from the New Spanish Realists, as well as...

“We wanted to be famous, glamourous and rich....” General Idea (active 1969–1994) came to embody and employ this maxim in their art. Like many of the group’s works, this statement was a cheeky reflection on the conventional public image of the artist as individual genius. Comprised of AA Bronson, Felix Partz, and Jorge Zontal, the group took on “a single point of view,” creating a unified, non-hierarchical entity.   General Idea: Life & Work  tracks how this artists’ group...
